    LOL!!! There are mexican arm bazaars in almost every city. They can buy an AK-47, fully automatic, for less that $20. We have to pay over $1200 for full auto capabilities!

    We should just tell Mexico if they'll quit letting the illegals cross our border we'll start making the Mexican gun runners actually quit buying guns here.

    What makes it even funnier is that Mexico has some of the strongest gun-control laws in the world, and they're knee-deep in weapons.

    we should tell them, "hey. We're just supplying the market. If your people didn't want them, we'd be out of business." You know, tell them the same thing they tell us about their drug smuggling...

    Aside from that I always thought Mexico was just a suburb of Tejas anyhows, or shoulda been. Wish Houston had just kept headin south.

    I think he had his hands full just trying to keep up with what the Texans were up to, Earl. Keeping track of several million Mexicans on top of that would've sent him into an earlier grave.

    Maybe so Troy, but they was a whole lotta Tejanos and Mexicans that were fighting Santa Ana right along side the Texicans as well as out of Texas volunteers!

    I always wondered how a guy who was so talented at making people hate him managed to wind up in charge of Mexico, and more than once at that. I'm talking about Santa Ana, of course.

    Well basic reason is he was a lil Hitler afore Hitler was Hitler, he seized property suspended the rights of most of his subjects and in his eyes that was what they were and genrally abused his position and was and is considered by many as a model despot.

    So how the heck did he ever manage to get power to begin with?

    I can understand Hitler, given the times and the conditions in Germany. But it seems like Santa Ana just kept appointing himself in charge, and people let him get away with it for some reason.

    Where and what was his power base?

    That I have to dig deeper and since I am a bit rusty on my history about what led up to his rise (Hey I am 50 okay I need refreshers now and then) but basically the country then as now was in turmoil and rife with corruption he was simply the most corrupt and devious of the bunch

    First off, Mexico has no business meddling with our gun control laws, period.

    Secondly, how would anybody in Mexico know what it is like to purchase a gun here, because they more than likley never have.

    Third, he said it was easy for Citizens to buy guns, and I am guessing it isn't American citizens going down to Mexico doing the shootings.

    And last, if they can't stop PEOPLE from crossing the border illegally, how do they think they are going to stop guns from doing the same thing? Idiots.
